Professors in the Theater arena: 'vliegschaamte'

NEWS - 04 MARCH 2019


Flying to the sun for thirty Euros? Shame on you?!


We fly more and more and ever longer distances. At the same time, we know that flying is bad for the environment. 'Vliegschaamte' is a new word for the double feeling that you both like to fly and you realize that you are damaging the environment by doing it. For the time being, we are not too worried about it. The number of passenger kilometers is growing 4.5 to 5% per year and we are still opting for cheap price fighters.

In this edition of Professors in the Theater Arena we address the question: can we ever fly climate-friendly - and without shame? Also: we will present you with some tough dilemmas. After all, flying also brings prosperity, happiness and cooperation with other cultures.
